Apple outperforms in latest quarter

Apple has just released results for their latest quarter and it seems as though their earnings are ahead of expectations, with revenues growth just below anayst consensus. iPod sales roared ahead and Apple maintained their 60% share of the market. But Mac sales were almost flat as Apple transitions to the Intel computers.

Apple shipped 1.1 million Macintosh computers and 8.5 million iPods during the quarter, representing 4% growth in Macs and 61% growth in iPods over the year-ago quarter.

Now that most Macs have shifted over to Intel chips - Apple should see sales improve. All in all this was a good start to the year - but Apple have a lot to live up to given their extraordinary performance last year.
